Ron Lemen is an excellent teacher, very communicative and invested in his students' improvement. There were a few instances when his feedback during the critiques/Q&A contradicted the information we got from his lectures. Ron's Q&A sessions were always informative and enjoyable. He encouraged discussions and answered students' questions in-depth.

Ron definitely showed that he cares about student progress and gave some amazing advice about anatomy drawing, and also about growth as an artist in general. --

I truly was impressed by his skill. He dragged us from the simplicity to the complexity using a very simple method. I really liked the class. BRAVO!

Thanks Ron, I have been trying to learn anatomy by myself for some time now, and I feel that this course has helped me to finally grasp a lot about anatomy! Everything finally made sense haha! Thanks, I feel with the weapons to take on this journey by myself now :) I will be forever grateful about that, Ron :) thanks!

Really impressed with Ron and happy I took the class with him. I am definitely a better artist now than I was six weeks ago, and as someone who already has a BFA (and has taken many many figure drawing classes in the past), I was really happy that Ron was teaching such a technical way of approaching the subject matter. In our first lesson he mentioned gesture drawing and how frustrating he found it to be as it did not yield a usable mannequin, and as someone who learned the "old way", I can definitely agree. Really, really useful class, taught by a great artist! Thank you! :)

A great teacher, Ron was able to be stern in his critiques while never seeming hostile or combative. I always felt that my improvement was his first priority. --

Ron is a tremendous source of information. He really knows his stuff, and he gives good critiques. Also special commendation for getting all the feedback videos in before the Q&As.
